Direct My Heart Rightly

“If you direct your heart rightly, you will stretch out your hands toward him. If iniquity is in your hand, put it far away, and do not let wickedness reside in your tents. Surely then you will lift up your face without blemish; you will be secure, and will not fear. You will forget your misery; you will remember it as waters that have passed away. And your life will be brighter than the noonday; its darkness will be like the morning. And you will have confidence, because there is hope; you will be protected and take your rest in safety. You will lie down, and no one will make you afraid; many will entreat your favor.” -Job 11:13-19

God gives me a choice. Do I choose to direct my heart towards Him? Or do I choose to do what I want at any given moment… or what others want? Am I in line with His will or am I even seeking to align myself with what God is doing and joining Him? This is a daily struggle for me, even hourly. I must choose. I am reminded of some lyrics from an old Rush song, “If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice.” When I am lazy, and don’t choose to direct my heart rightly, I’ve made a choice to direct it to everywhere(one) else but GOD. Oh how I long to direct my heart rightly and how I need my Savior daily! I am praying for God to pour out His Holy Spirit to gently push my heart and reach out to my Creator daily. I give my fears and failures to Jesus, He is a God who is mighty to save.
